Will a claim you retract before you make repairs still be shown as an accident or affect your premium?

If the only damage is to your car and the accident did not

result in any property damage to anyone else then you can refuse

payment and close the claim without settlement and should be able

to avoid any negative impact on your rates. If on the other hand

there is damage to another vehicle or property that will be paid by

your insurance company then you might as well take what you can

from your insurance company for your vehicle.
